Art and Design The Art and Design Department’s exhibition ‘The Aviary’ in April was the first exhibition of Lower School work in the Bishop Centre. More than 300 girls were involved and the private view was a great occasion where the sculptures made by students were shown alongside those by Old Dolphin Jane Ackroyd (MA RCA). Head of Department Lucy Cooper was keen for the imaginative work being created by Lower School students to be seen. The exhibition included ceramic owls, shredded paper and mixed media ostriches and wire and paper-maché carrier pigeons from the Second World War. The exhibition was very popular with a large number of guests attending. Visitors enjoyed the sound of birdsong as they wandered amongst the flocks of birds and a collection was made for the London Wetland Centre who sent representatives along to enjoy the spectacular bird display. Next year, Lower School students will celebrate their work in ‘The Greenhouse’, an exhibition of constructed textiles. Students throughout the school will be introduced to a range of techniques including felting, embroidery and weaving and GCSE Art and Design students and A-Level students will have their first opportunity to experiment with cold glass. These new skill areas add to a well resourced department which is already able to offer students an experience of ceramics, printmaking techniques and darkroom photographic processes.

Development Office News

Since we last wrote to you, this year’s Annual Giving Programme has continued to inspire gifts to Godolphin and Latymer. Thank you very much to all in our school community who have made a gift this year. Thank you too, to the many of you who have given up your time to find out more about Annual Giving, our plans for implementing these exciting projects, with your support, and our development plans for the longer term. It has been a pleasure to meet you and to share these ideas with you. This term one of our families has given a leadership gift to Annual Giving towards the introduction of a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). We are very close to achieving our goal of introducing this in September. As we write, over £ 65,000 has been pledged to the Annual Giving Programme. We do still need your help to secure the final tranche of investment in school funding to make this a reality. If you do wish to make a gift to the programme, please go to the school website and use our online giving options under the Supporting Us tab on the home page. Alternatively, give us a call in the Development Office on 0208 735 9550, which will be open most of the summer holidays. I am delighted to say that the Karl Kahane Foundation has confirmed a grant of a new bursary on entry to Godolphin and Latymer starting in September 2011. This commitment of over £108,000 over seven years has provided a huge boost to the funding of bursaries through the Annual Giving Programme.

FREE AND LOYAL ART THOU Friends of G&L This year we celebrate the four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the King James Version of the Bible – sometimes called the Authorised Version. James I wanted a Bible that drew upon the best scholarship and improve on previous versions. This year, we have seen three major books on this remarkable phenomenon: by Melvyn Bragg, Gordon Campbell and David Crystal: Bragg lamented its loss, Campbell explained its provenance and Crystal picked out a couple of hundred phrases now part of our everyday literary and common chatter, not to mention poetry, novels and a good deal more. Gordon Campbell came on 23rd May and informed, educated and entertained in his Public Lecture to a substantial audience. He was down to earth and could present complex historical data with humour and clarity. He has a rare gift of communication and we all learned a great deal. Gordon Campbell stressed that this four-hundred-year-old literary gem with words so familiar, especially in weddings, has given something

special to so many generations and that as much as any, it’s down to the teachers to make sure it’s cherished and that the rising generation should appreciate its language if not more. It was a splendid evening.

Old Dolphins Aspire This term, a panel of five Old Dolphins came in to share their stories, wisdom and knowledge of life after G&L with the UIV. The worlds of medicine, law and the theatre came together with a Princeton undergraduate and a Gap Year student to offer advice (love drama? then life as a barrister may suit you!) and answer those all important questions (“What’s a fraternity house like?” and “When did you decide that you wanted to take a Gap Year?”). With the unifying experience of G&L, it was a lively and informative afternoon which we plan to run again next year. Thanks must go to the Old Dolphins who came in, but also to Mrs Wright for organising the event.

“It was really helpful and interesting to hear what they had done since leaving school.” Abby

“A great opportunity to talk to those who have experienced the school recently, who know what we’re thinking. We wouldn’t always have that chance to talk to Old Dolphins.” Isabella

“It was really interesting.” Candice

“I like the fact that you can choose who to listen to depending on what career you are interested in.” Lottie

“good and interesting. Less worried about the future as others got through it, especially as two of the Old Dolphins didn’t know what they were going to do.” Lily T H E G O D O L P H I N A N D L AT Y M E R S C H O O L

Staff Zone G&L’s Essential Shakespeareans! Dr Bickley and Dr Stevens will be embarking on an exciting new project this summer. Following one of their pedagogical seminars for university English departments, they were approached by a publisher from Arden Shakespeare and asked to submit a proposal for a firstyear undergraduate guide to Shakespeare.

Contracts have now been signed and Essential Shakespeare:The Arden Guide to Text and Interpretation is scheduled to reach the bookshop shelves in summer 2013. The book will discuss a wide range of plays, looking at both text and performance, as well as engaging readers with recent critical developments. Arden sees this as being a key guide for students moving from sixth-form to university English studies. The authors are both looking forward to spending their holidays in the British Library and to trying out some of their ideas in A Level lessons. Girls, you have been warned!

Community Review Godolphin’s links with Cambridge School, our immediate neighbour have benefited from two very successful projects this term: the visual literacy project involving LVI IB students and a drama project initiated by Caroline Stafford and Clara de Pretis in LVS. This year, 14 LVI IB girls have committed enthusiastically to the visual literacy project which is centred around the Kate Greenaway Award for children’s fiction. Over the course of three lunchtime sessions held in the library, the IB girls have supported and encouraged eleven year 7 students from Cambridge school as they have worked their way through the selection of books nominated for the award and helped them to construct a review of their favourite book. My thanks to Mr Benton and Mrs Fei in the library for their help and support of this project. It is always very exciting when community projects driven by the girls get off the ground and I was glad to lend my support to Caroline Stafford’s and Clara de Pretis’ idea of organising a series of four drama workshops for year 8 students at Cambridge school. Motivated by their own love of drama, Caroline and Clara provided an excellent opportunity for a small group of Cambridge students to experiment with different activities designed for developing social interaction and confidence. Although Cambridge School will be based at its new site near Phoenix School from September, we very much hope to maintain links with the school through special projects as there is still much of mutual benefit that can be gained from the link. Other news… An update on the link with Kelemework School…. A second round of letter-writing between students at Godolphin and Kelemework School has taken place this term and replies from the Ethiopian students are expected soon.

Social Services The Social Services Team 2010-11 is very pleased to announce that the final total raised for various local, national and international charities this year was an impressive:

£22 592.50

Many thanks to all the girls and staff who have bought and baked cakes, given money to the collections, turned out in mufti, placed 1ps and 2ps in the copper trail, taken part in the “Pink Quiz,” donated goods to the harvest appeal, been a contestant on “Teachers’ Take Me Out” and even grown moustaches for Movember - your support and generosity throughout the year is greatly appreciated.

A shared science project investigating solar stills has been carried out by LV Chemists and Year 10 students at Kelemework and the results have been shared and analysed. My thanks to Mrs Deirdre O’Connor for co-ordinating this project. The Latin outreach club on a Wednesday afternoon has also been taking place this term and for the first time students have been entered for the WJEC First Certificate in Latin as a culmination to the three year course. My thanks to Mrs Kate Harrison who has shared the teaching this year with me.

Economics IEA State of the Economy Conference Three LVI economists were very fortunate to obtain tickets to attend the prestigious State of the Economy Conference in Pall Mall last term. As the global economic landscape continues to undergo major changes, leading business figures and academics had plenty to debate as they delivered their forecasts on the direction of the economy. The State of the Economy Conference offered a thought-provoking agenda

with an excellent line up of speakers discussing major developments: from shifting power within the global economy and the future of the Euro, to tackling the UK's fiscal deficit and the prospects for growth. This made for a wide-reaching and informative event, attracting senior figures from a range of industries, as well as a few lucky students. Staff and interested students look forward to attending the next public lecture on the 5th July by Professor Robert Barro who will be speaking about Fiscal-Stimulus Packages.

Music The end of the Spring Term was a very busy time for the Music department with our usual programme of choral and instrumental concerts. There were an enormous range of musical styles in evidence as the various groups and choirs took to the stage to a warm and enthusiastic reception from the audience. March also saw a very special concert and reception to mark the 30th anniversary of the orchestral exchange with the Johanneum School in Hamburg. It was a pleasure to host our friends from Germany for the week and the concert saw the culmination of many hours of hard work from both orchestras. The highlight, however, had to be an outstanding performance of the first movement of Khachaturian’s monumental ‘Violin Concerto’ from Francesca Nardone of the UVI.

PE Under 13 National Champions The Under 13 Cricket team recently enjoyed great success in the Lady Taverners Cup after winning our first round against other South London schools, notably the great rivals St. Paul’s Girls’ School. We played excellent cricket showing great teamwork on and off the pitch and Viola Lough and Antonia Welch should be recognised for their brilliant batting and Gaya Gole for her wonderful captaincy. As champions we moved onto the county competition and comfortably won the round robin competition in order to move on to the semi-finals stage. This was much closer and we were lucky to win by one run. The final was a tense affair but we cruised to an easier victory against Stoke Newington School. Now as Middlesex champions we had qualified for the South of England regional finals. This tournament was in the same format as the last and again we were victorious our group stage. The semi-final was an easy win and then we played Oathall College in the final. The nerves flared but tight fielding and a brilliant bowling effort from Viola saw us continue our winning streak. Viola bowled 2 clean wickets and a run out in 3 balls which is a team hat trick. Brilliant batting once again from Viola and Antonia helped us beat them with 11 balls to spare. The player of the final was Camille Harrison for excellent fielding and batting and the player of the tournament was Viola.

confidence. We lost the toss and we ended up batting first. We batted well and retired Gaya, Antonia and Tasha. After our 10 overs we had scored 128 runs. This was an excellent score. We then bowled them all out within the 10 overs, with them only reaching 98 runs. This was an extremely good win. It was a great experience for us and we were very pleased to be crowned not only National Champions but we were also undefeated throughout all of our tournaments. We would like to thank the teachers, especially Miss Kersten for organising and taking us there. Thanks also to Mark and Buddy Mason for coaching and managing our team all year. Written by Manon Post and Gaya Gole

The National Finals in May were a tense affair but we felt we had an extra-edge because the other team had never played at our home ground Lords before, so they were slightly overwhelmed. Before the final match we were all very nervous, but we went into the match with

Boat Club Godolphin and Latymer Boat Club had a successful National Schools’ Regatta in Nottingham, May 27 – May 29 2011, gaining a silver medal in the Girls’ J15 coxed fours. The crew progressed from the processional qualifier to the semi finals, and then to final where they lined up against some strong rowing schools. Leading the final at the half way stage, the girls had dropped to third by the final 250m. But cheered on by over 40 G&L and KCS J14s, as well as family, friends and coaches, the crew pushed hard and wound it up to gain silver, missing out on gold by a canvas (1.5m) in a thrilling race. Well done to the J15s on this marvellous result!

Geography Cuckmere We were all relieved when we finally arrived at Seaford, the small town where we would start the trip. An hour late, we met up with friends from other classes and tucked into our well earned lunches, the sun beaming down on us and the shingle beach. After a while, we all got up and we split into our classes and were given a quick briefing before our designated Geography teacher lead us over to the cliff face. We walked a short way over to an interesting part of the beach that had a variety of coastal defences: an old groyne; rip-rap; tetrapods; and a sea wall, before making our way up the cliffs. At the top we had a quick water break, before staring in awe at the outstanding views of the blue sea and sky with the beach and town below it. The vigorous photo taking began at this point, as we carried on over the top of the cliff. As the cliff slopped down the first rabbit was spotted, and a prize was promised on arrival back at school. When we reached Cuckmere, we sat down and sketched the beautiful landscape, labelling important features such as: the wave cut platform; salt marshes; rivers; streams. After this we went down to the beach and took some measurements of the angle at which the beach sloped, before making our way back to the coach along a path between pretty green fields lined with shrubs. When we arrived at a nearby car park after our beautiful walk, we all gathered round a small ice cream van, each devouring a scrumptious treat of our own.

UIII visit to the Thames Barrier Booking fieldtrips in March, in the middle of a heat wave, it seemed impossible to believe that torrential rain would occur in mid June – but then this is England and the first drought warnings and hose pipe bans had already been announced. June 16th dawned with grey overcast skies, depressing but no rain so moods were optimistic. This did not last long; by the time we left School the heavens opened. Ironically, the purpose of our fieldtrip was to examine the possibility of the Thames flooding and why, to prevent this happening, it had been necessary to build a Barrier as part of a flood protection scheme for London. A quick sprint to the tube, damp steamy girls hustled onto the train, and we were off! Disembarking at Westminster we walked speedily to the boat that would take us to the Barrier. Unfortunately the rain became increasingly heavy and despite an exceptionally informative guide those in the downstairs cabin saw most of London’s magnificent river views in a blur through steamed up windows. At the Barrier it brightened up and after lunch and a walk around the Exhibition the sun came out and the girls were able to sit outside and sketch the Barrier before catching the boat for the return journey. A worthwhile visit that, bearing in mind our experiences, made the reality of the Thames flooding seem all too possible.

Modern Foreign Languages Nantes – The trip was affected by the sad news of the death of one of the French girls who participated in the exchange. Our thoughts are with the family at this time. The girls and boys of G&L and LUS were extremely supportive, mature and sensible in trying circumstances, and our thanks go both to them, and Ms Matthews and Mr Davies. All ensured the trip went as well as possible.

Joan Miró Exhibiton – a farewell to the UVI Hispanists will take place on Friday 24th June, when we will visit the world renowned Miró exhibition currently taking place at Tate Modern. More info here: http://www.tate.org. uk/modern/exhibitions/joanmiro/default.shtm

Congratulations to Sophie Pridgeon and Freya Steveni who have been made next year’s French Debating Captains. Keep an eye out for future debates and topics that will definitely help you in your A level and IB studies. The Link – Thanks to all those who have applied to be members of the Editing team for The Link magazine.Your deadline for emailing me your short written pieces is 5th of September. Get writing! Nimes – The very best of luck to the 40 girls who are off to Nimes at the start of the Summer holidays. They will be staying with local families, and will no doubt receive a warm Southern French welcome.Visits will include trips to the Pont du Gard, Avignon, and Arles.

Italian – Six LVI Italian students are off to Francis Holland for an evening of Italian plays on the 21st June. We are sure the evening will be a great success, as they will address aspects of Italian culture, society and history relevant to both A level and IB syllabi. Russian exchange – Nine girls welcomed their Russian exchange partners during the first half of this term. The Russian group was full of praise for the welcome they received, and enjoyed a period of very un-British weather, where the sun shone almost every day! Although the weather will no doubt be very different on our return to Moscow, the welcome will be as warm as ever.

E-culturas – Keep an eye out for the “E-Culturas” project being run in the Spanish Department, in conjunction with the University of Jaen. Students from a range of Spanish-speaking schools across the globe are paired up and given a programme of activities to complete together, with the aim of increasing awareness of other cultures and developing an understanding of how life is for students of the same age attending school in other countries. Their first task was to create an introduction to themselves and their school life via a video link, which can be seen on Youtube – here http://tinyurl.com/3whda9d

FREE AND LOYAL ART THOU German Topic Day On Wednesday 16th March, four other sixth form students and I attended a German Topic day for AS and A2 students. The day consisted of a series of very interesting and relevant discussions based on topics such as tourism, drugs, the Internet and current events, as well as fun games such as “Kasino Deutschland”. We were not allowed to speak English throughout the entire day. This gave us a chance to become really immersed in the language. Not only did the day provide us with a great opportunity to practise our German, but it also allowed us to learn more about German culture in a new and exciting way. By Elizabeth Banes

German Exchange 2011 During the Easter holidays seven Godolphin girls, six Latymer Upper students and two teachers set off for what would be one of the most memorable experiences of their lives. As we departed from Heathrow early in the morning we sat nervously waiting to be greeted by our host families. This was accompanied by bursts of excitement at meeting our exchange partners who we hadn’t seen for six months. All of our exchange partners were perfectly matched so after two weeks we were all sad to leave. We truly felt part of the family. We visited many interesting sites in Hamburg, such as the longest market in Europe which took about 40 minutes to walk through. We also went to theme parks in the evenings and the local swimming pool, as well as shopping. Some of us were also lucky enough to be taken to Berlin at the weekend which was a spectacular experience. Many new friendships were formed and often they were international which has created new holiday location opportunities as well as alternate schooling opportunities. I am still in regular contact with my exchange partner and I look forward to going to Hamburg in the summer and for her to come over to an English boarding school in the Autumn Term. Many thanks to Mrs Fenton and Dr Creagh for organising such an enjoyable visit. Portia Fellows

History of Art In April the UVI History of Art students visited the post-1945 galleries and architecture of New York. Here are some of their responses to the experience:

“I have loved, loved, loved the insane itinerary” “I feel like the Abstract Expressionists had to be experienced to be understood.” “I feel enlightened having seen all the architecture first hand” “I feel like I’ve picked up some priceless, momentous life experiences there”

“It’s been a dangerous amount of fun.” “It is very difficult to dislike a painting or a building that you’ve learnt so much about when you are right in front of it.” “You really can’t gain this fabby experience from any mode of digital entertainment.” “It’s been great to see so much of New York in such a short time.” Some highlights: • Seeing the view of New York by night from the Empire State Building • Eating a hot pastrami sandwich in Katz’s Deli • The constant walking and exploring the streets of Manhattan • Going to Yale to experience Louis Kahn’s architecture. And Ms Osborne’s biggest surprise: hearing the students sing their homage to Mies van der Rohe.

“The Met is my new favourite museum.”

Science Science Induction Day For the past three years the Science Induction Afternoon has given girls new to the school a chance to complete a varied programme of Science activities in a laboratory setting. It is designed to help them to feel confident when completing experiments in a safe environment and to have fun. Following the success of previous years, this year the programme has been expanded to incorporate a morning of Sporting Activities. The girls meet Miss Adey, Head of Lower School, and her pastoral management team. Having lunch with the current UIII gives all a chance to talk about life at G&L with the emphasis on asking any questions from a student’s perspective. Apart from familiarisation with the school the most important purpose of this day is to introduce the girls to each other and, for some, a chance to practise the journey home. The aim of the day is to help the girls feel relaxed, happy and looking forward to the start of their secondary school education at Godolphin and Latymer.

Group 4 Project 2011 The theme for this year was chosen as The Environment, and the girls were put into 5 cross-disciplinary teams to tackle this open-ended investigation in any way they saw fit. The point of the Group 4 project is to see how well the girls work together in teams to come up with and share ideas, to listen to the ideas of others, and to overcome any trials and tribulations along the way. The actual scientific outcome is not assessed at all, although as usual, the girls’ ideas spoke volumes of their scientific ability and understanding.

ethic of our girls and how well they can work together, and this year’s was no exception, as those present at the symposium will confirm.

On the evening of 26 May, we held a symposium with the girls, their families and many of our teachers. Each team had a poster display of their project, and gave a short presentation on the work they had carried out and how they had gone about it. As ever, it was humbling to see quite how much the girls managed to pack in to just ten hours of work, from coming up with their initial ideas, to refining them, to carrying them out, to refining them some more and redoing them if need be, to the climax of some excellent presentations. The Group 4 project is real testament to the ability, determination and work

UIII visit to Wetlands

At the beginning of the Easter break, eighteen girls from the LVI and UVI took part in the Physics CERN visit to Geneva. They spent their first day at the site of the famous particle accelerator and were truly enthused by their visit. The trip also included a visit to the Red Cross museum and a fascinating tour of the UN, as well as an all-important tasting session at a chocolate factory. The weather was glorious throughout, which made the girls’ last morning particularly memorable as they took a boat tour of Lake Geneva.

Some of the UIII looked at the Wetlands website to gain information on the species of bird that had been spotted at the centre. They then looked up information supplied by the RSPB to learn a little about the birds. Redshanks, Kingfishers and Little Egrets all visit the Wetlands. The girls were able to find out about migration pathways , diet and adaptations. After the visit, they made collages of the birds they had researched which can now be found displayed in web gallery.
